MBA/MS in Human Resource Management


Choosing to earn a dual degree MBA/MS is an important decision, and it can be very advantageous. Not only do you earn two masters degrees, but you also save on 15 credits of coursework. More importantly, the two degrees complement each other and make you better prepared for significantly contributing day one in the workplace.

The MBA/MSHRM dual degree can be pursued in the following program/format:

  • MBA / MSHRM in part-time format
